Summary
A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year: In a dystopian future New York, a girl's diary chronicles her life as society begins to crumble around her. Until recently, Lola Hart's biggest problem was her annoying little sister. Now the twelve-year-old girl's comfortable life is slowly falling apart. Her mother is a teacher, but she's lost her job. Her father is a writer, but no one is buying his scripts. When the family can no longer afford either their Manhattan apartment or the tuition for Lola's exclusive private school, they are forced to radically change their lifestyle. They move to a small apartment near Harlem, and Lola enrolls in public school-but the Harts aren't alone in their troubles. Riots, fires, TB outbreaks, roaming gangs, and civil unrest have become commonplace, threatening the very fabric of life in New York. In the pages of her diary, Lola documents her family's attempts to adjust to a city and a country that are spinning out of control. Jack Womack, a winner of the Philip K. Dick Award, has been compared to both William Gibson and Kurt Vonnegut for his vivid prose and unbridled imagination
